Day Tickets can now be bought online.

We hope you will enjoy having a good look around the site and will find everything you may need. If you can't find it then get in touch and we will get back to you. As a Club we are run wholly by volunteers who give their time and energy to keep the Club running in a forward looking and sustainable way. This maintains the traditions established early in the last century and maintained by a succession of anglers from the local area. It is a condition of the Club's Constitution that full members must reside within a 20 mile radius of Newton Abbot. Many of our waters are disused clay workings which are long established as natural habitats and are unique in many ways leading to some very special fishing. Most ponds, particularly those at Rackerhayes, hold stocks of beautiful tench with 5lb being an average fish. Most seasons see double figure fish landed and many in the 7lb+ bracket are quite commonplace. Bream are also popular fish and once again many 7lb+ fish are taken each year. Carp are well established and are a popular quarry with plenty of 20lb+ fish available to most anglers who are crafty enough to winkle them out. The Committee endeavour to cater for all branches of coarse fishing and manage and maintain the fisheries in their own time. There is a thriving match and junior section. You can find fixture lists on the Match pages on this site. The junior section is popular and the Club was the first angling club to achieve Clubmark status in Devon and Cornwall. This accredits the tuition and courses offered as meeting the highest national standards.The Club has had excellent backing from the Environment Agency and Angling Trust in developing platforms and walkways on Wheel pond where most junior activities take place. Please note Newton Abbot is now an eel friendly club so for news on what this means click on the button on this page. Our waters contain some real monsters and we are keen to preserve them and their offspring for the future and fish to 5lb+ commonly fall to angler's baits each summer.

That’s all for now folks! Tight lines.
